.DISCUSSION...
Showers and thunderstorms are continuing to fire up along the
coastal counties this afternoon. Some of these storms have been
producing locally heavy rainfall with rainfall rates up to 3" an
hour along with gusty winds and frequent lightning. Storms should
begin to die down over land this evening with some activity
lingering over the offshore waters overnight. Isolated to
scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible again tomorrow
across the coastal counties and offshore waters. Some of these
storms may produce locally heavy rainfall as PWs near the coast
are forecast to remain near or above 2".

A cold front will push through SE Texas overnight tonight,
bringing much more pleasant temperatures and lower humidity into
the forecast for the rest of the period. Highs are generally forecast
in the 80s, with low temperatures in the 50s and 60s.
